DBIx::DataModel - Classes and UML-style Associations on top of DBI - Laurent Dami
Thursday, The Camel Room, 945, 20 mins

There is definitely more than one way to design an object-to-relational mapping framework (so-called ORM). This talk will briefly cover the design dimensions in this area, and then will highlight the main features of DBIx::DataModel : UML-style associations, modelling of joins through multiple inheritance, variable-size objects, flexible SQL generation at each method call, etc.
